Dolphins officially announce 19 UDFA signings, reveal rookie jersey numbers

Miss St. WR Chad Bumphis headlines Miami’s UDFA signings

The list of undrafted rookie free agents Miami signed was officially released this afternoon at Dolphins’ rookie minicamp. We’ve known some of these players would be Dolphins since hours after last week’s draft concluded. But now it’s official.

The Dolphins have had undrafted free agent gems on their roster in recent years. That list includes All-Pro defensive end Cameron Wake, who went undrafted in 2005, and the recently-traded Davone Bess, who the Dolphins signed after the 2008 draft out of Hawaii.

So don’t sleep on one of these undrafted rookie free agents not only seriously competing for a roster spot this summer but becoming a key contributor down the road. Without further ado, here are the Dolphins’ 2013 undrafted signees:

G – CHRIS BARKER (6-2, 305, Nevada)
QB – CLAY BELTON (6-5, 232, Findlay)
C – SAM BRENNER (6-2, 301, Utah)
WR – CHAD BUMPHIS (5-10, 196, Mississippi State)
DT – CHRIS BURNETTE (6-2, 285, Old Dominion)
LB – MICHAEL CLAY (5-11, 230, Oregon)
WR – JUNIOR COLLINS (5-10, 180, Mount Union)
DT – A.J. FRANCIS (6-0, 309, Maryland)
LB – ALONZO HIGHSMITH, JR. (6-0, 234, Arkansas)
S – KEELAN JOHNSON (5-11, 209, Arizona State)
S – JORDAN KOVAKS (5-10, 205, Michigan)
FB – INA LIAINA (5-11, 240, San Jose State)
RB – CAMERON MARSHALL (5-9, 211, Arizona State)
LB – ROB McCABE (6-0, 231, Georgetown)
DE – TRISTAN OKPALUGO (6-4, 245, Fresno State)
DE – EMEKA ONYENEKWU (6-3, 251, Louisiana-Lafayette)
WR – TERRELL SINKFIELD (6-0, 198, Northern Iowa)
WR – TAYLOR STOCKEMER (6-4, 215, Arkansas State)
T – PATRICK WARD (6-6, 305, Northwestern)

The nine drafted rookies were also seen wearing jersey numbers at rookie minicamp. While these very well may be the numbers these players eventually wear come Week 1, rookies have been known to change their numbers as late as right before the regular season. So don’t go getting that custom made rookie jersey just yet.

#95 Dion Jordan, DE
#22 Jamar Taylor, CB
#70 Dallas Thomas, OT
#29 Will Davis, CB
#43 Jelani Jenkins, LB
#80 Dion Sims, TE
#35 Mike Gillislee, RB
#9 Caleb Sturgis, K
#36 Don Jones, CB
